Georgia TE Brock Bowers discusses what AD Mitchell brings to Texas
Week 12: In a 38-10 walkover against Tennessee, Bowers was targeted eight times, caught seven for 60 yards and a touchdown and showed no effects from his ankle surgery. He lined up 11 times inline and blocked well; was in the slot for 27 plays and outside once. Looked like the great tight end that he is. -- FC
Week 11: Only 26 days after undergoing tightrope surgery on his ankle, Bowers played in a 53-27 win over Ole Miss. He was in on 49 snaps and caught three passes for 34 yards and a touchdown. Before the injury, Bowers played in every game at Georgia since arriving in 2021, winning the Mackey Award for nation’s top tight end last season and being a key cog in back-to-back national championships. With the help of one bye week, Bowers missed only two and a half games and still leads the team with 44 catches for 601 yards. Some agents told him to skip the season and get get ready for the NFL. "It never crossed my mind,” Bowers said. “I just wanted to always come back with the team and all the guys in the locker room. … I just wanted to come back and try to help the team win." -- FC
Week 10: Georgia 30, Missouri 21. Bowers DNP.
Week 9: Georgia 42, Florida 20. Bowers DNP.
Week 8: Georgia has bye
Week 7: After catching four passes for 22 yards in Georgia's 37-20 win over Vanderbilt on October 14, Bowers injured his ankle when he rushed for four yards, on a play that was called back because quarterback Carson Beck was flagged for holding. On October 16 Bowers underwent "tightrope" surgery. That is the same surgery Tua Tagovailoa underwent twice. At this point, ond of the best tight ends in college football history totalled 41 catches for 567 yards and four touchdowns along with six carries for 28 yards and another score in 2023. For his three season career, Bowers caught 160 passes for 2,391 yards and 24 touchdowns and added 19 rushes for 193 yards and six scores. -- FC
Week 6: Bowers was again special in defending national champ Georgia' most authorative win of the season, a 51-13 drubbing of No. 24 Kentucky. The big TE had seven catches out of nine targets for 132 yards, including a long of 49 yards, and a TD. His only blemish was that he did drop a pass, just his second oopsie of the year. Lost in Bowers' magisterial receiving numbers is the fact he's been solid as a blocker in Georgia's running — his blocking was especially forceful against Kentucky, helping the Dawgs' ground game total 173 yards.
Week 5: Another monster day for the nation's best tight end as Bowers carried No. 1-ranked Georgia to its fifth straight win to start the season, a 27-20 road win at Auburn. Bowers was targeted 12 times, catching eight passes for a whopping 157 yards. His one TD catch was a tremendous 29-yard catch and run late in the game that proved to be the margin of victory. When he wasn't stretching the seam, breaking tackles or catching passes one-handed, he was running the ball from the backfield, as he did once, converting a 3rd-and-short with a four-yard run. — JH
Week 4: The big TE had a big receiving today in Georgia's win over UAB. Bowers called all nine passes targeted to him for 127 yards and two TDs. He had a long of 44 yards. Though he did fumble once, Bowers, per usual was a holy terror after the catch, racking up an astounding 111 of his receiving yards after the reception — none more spectacular than his 41-yard TD where he shed two tacklers near the sideline before taking it the final 15 yards. — JH
Week 3: Bowers had a busy day in the Bulldogs 24-14 win versus South Carolina. Bowers registered seven catches on nine targets for 54 yards. He tallied 44 of his receiving yards after the catch. Bowers finished the game second on the team in receiving yards.
Week 2: Bowers had a quiet day in the Bulldogs' 45-3 stomping of Ball State. The big tight end played 34 snaps, 14 fewer than he did in Week 1, and caught just one catch for three yards. He had one drop in the three times he was targeted. — JH
Week 1: In Georgia's season-opening 48-7 rout of the University of Tennesee at Martin, our top-ranked tight end caught a pass each of the five times he was targeted. Of his 81 receiving yards, 60 came after the catch, showcasing his prowess with the ball in his hands. — JH
